Doctor Who: Survivors of the Flux

Well, that was a bit of a mess, albeit an exciting mess. But it really doesn't bode well for satisfyingly wrapping up al of the disparate threads of this season in a single final episode. It also felt very much like a lot of the business along the way, while fun, was really there as … Continue reading Doctor Who: Survivors of the Flux


STRANGE TALES had been a long-running suspense/monster series that transitioned into becoming a super hero title as the Silver Age got under way. But it was a lesser Marvel title, especially at the early part of that transition, and so back issues were relatively plentiful and relatively affordable when compared with FANTASTIC FOUR or AMAZING … Continue reading WC: STRANGE TALES #111

Here's another issue of another title that I got in a 3-Bag distributed through either a department store or a toy store. At the time I would have purchased that bag, the books it contained would have been around 9 months old. Which was handy for catching up with recent issues of assorted Marvel series … Continue reading BHOC: PETER PARKER, THE SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN #7

Personal Best: FANTASTIC FOUR #60

As anybody who knows me knows, my favorite Marvel comic book is FANTASTIC FOUR. It was my entranceway into the Marvel Universe in the first place, and it and its characters remained close to my heart. Once I became a full-fledged editor, I made it very clear to people that the next time there was … Continue reading Personal Best: FANTASTIC FOUR #60

Brand Echh: Americomics Special #1

AC/Americomics (occasionally known as Paragon Publications) is a long running independent comic book publisher, one that is still releasing new issues even today. Their main stock-in-trade has become reprints of Golden Age characters whose work had lapsed into the public domain, but they do occasionally release wholly original comic book properties. Probably the thing they … Continue reading Brand Echh: Americomics Special #1

A post from my Marvel blog of years ago detailing a pitch for an early 1980s DAREDEVIL Saturday Morning cartoon series. Like a Daredevil... August 11, 2008 | 1:00 AM | By Tom_Brevoort | In General History is littered with Marvel tie-in projects that never got done. As far back as 1974, Stan Lee was … Continue reading Blah Blah Blog – Like a Daredevil
